Emily Randall Announces Over $225,000 Raised in Six Weeks

Over 1,000 in-district donors and 300 local endorsements show campaign’s grassroots momentum

BREMERTON, WA–Emily Randall, candidate for Washington’s Sixth Congressional District, announced today she has raised more than $225,000 since launching her campaign six weeks ago. 

More than one-thousand donors from nearly thirty cities across the District contributed to Randall’s campaign. Eighty-three percent of Randall’s donors are from Washington state. The median donation amount is $50. 

“I’m so proud of this outpouring of support from across Washington’s Sixth Congressional District. As I said when I launched this campaign, I want to be a voice for the neighbors and communities that I grew up with right here in the district — our momentum shows that’s what voters here want too,” Randall said. “As a twenty five year district resident, your concerns are my priorities and that’s why my neighbors in the district are joining our campaign.”  

Randall’s impressive fundraising haul — in just over six weeks’ time — speaks to the tremendous grassroots momentum building for her campaign for Congress. Randall is the only candidate in the race who has never taken any money from corporate PACs.

The State Senator, who has won both of her hotly contested elections in the 26th district, reported that over half of her contributions were from residents of the 6th Congressional District — an important indicator of viability in the race to replace retiring Congressman Derek Kilmer. 

To date, Randall has received nearly 300 endorsements, including 60 current and former Washington elected officials as well as The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, South Kitsap Professional Firefighters, Latino Victory Fund, Washington Secretary of State Steve Hobbs, Washington State Senate Majority Leader Andy Billig, and Jefferson County Commissioner Kate Dean. 

In their December 20th endorsement of Randall, Ron Allen, Tribal Chairman of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe reflected the sentiments of other in-district supporters, “As a State Senator, Emily has been dedicated to important issues such as health care, education and strengthening our economy. Our Tribe has deep appreciation for her skills and knowledge of the political system to be an effective leader for our 6th District needs. We believe she has shown she is the leader that we need in Washington, DC.”

Jefferson County Commissioner and former 6th Congressional District candidate Kate Dean said of Randall, “she is the only candidate in the race I trust to stand up for the Olympic Peninsula. Emily has the legislative skill, experience winning tough races, and deep ties to the district to serve the 6th Congressional District well.”

The Sixth Congressional District spans from Tacoma to the Olympic Peninsula, and has been represented by Congressman Derek Kilmer since 2013. On November 9, 2023, Kilmer announced his retirement. If elected, Emily Randall, a third-generation Washingtonian and 25-year resident of the district would be the first LGBTQ+ Latina ever elected to Congress.


Planned Parenthood Action Fund sole endorses Emily.
